What a piece of work is a man,
How noble in reason
How infinite in faculties,
In form and moving
How express and admirable,
In action how like an angel,
In apprehension how like a god.

On a related note (or not), it was Emerson who wrote:
Man is a god in ruins.
Can't read this without thinking of the song from Hair...
Dat Willie had a way with woids. Not sure I agree with what he's saying, but he said it extemely well.
Hmm - well, Hamlet wasna feeling that way at the time - he turned it around in the next bit of the soliloquy!
